COOPERSTOWN, NY – Effective immediately, the New Leash on Life Thrift Shop has instituted a new drop-off policy for incoming donations.
To ensure that donated items are protected from inclement weather, drop-offs will only be accepted during thrift store business hours, Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., or by appointment.
Proceeds from the New Leash on Life Thrift Shop benefit the Susquehanna Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SQSPCA), located at 5082-5088 State Highway 28.
“The quantity and quality of the merchandise the thrift store receives has increased to such an extent that we find it necessary to better regulate the flow of donations,” said SQSPCA Executive Director Stacie Haynes.
“We are very grateful for the tremendous public support the shelter receives. Our goal is to protect this ever-changing array of furniture, clothing, housewares, artwork and other amazing donated items from the elements,” Haynes said.
Those wishing to deliver donations by appointment should contact New Leash on Life Manager Sara Lucas at (607) 547-9462 or via e-mail at [email protected].
In operation since 1917, the Susquehanna SPCA is a 501c3 nonprofit organization committed to caring for homeless, surrendered, and seized companion animals and finding them loving, forever homes. For more information or to donate, visit www.sqspca.org
